Former track champion Alan Krimes raced to his first Lincoln Speedway win since September of 2016 on Saturday evening.
Krimes collected $3,500 for his 19th career Lincoln win.
Krimes started second and outgunned pole-sitter Cole Young at the waving of the green flag. He maintained the lead for the entire 25-lap distance, although he never got far from the field.
In the end, it was Spring Grove’s Tim Glatfelter who finished second, with defending track champion Brian Montieth in third. York’s Adam Wilt finished fourth, with Dover’s Chad Trout in fifth.
Rounding out the top 10 were York’s Cory Haas, Lewisberry’s Kyle Moody, Jim Siegel, York’s Chase Dietz and York’s Glenndon Forsythe.
In the 20-lap 358 sprint-car season opener, defending track champion Troy Wagaman Jr. of Hanover picked up the win. Wagaman also started second and was credited with leading every lap. However, it wasn’t quite as easy as it seems. Second-place finisher Kevin Nouse passed Wagaman on the final set of turns, but Wagaman was able to regain a slim lead at the finish line. Tyler Ross finished third, with Matt Findley and Cody Fletcher in the top five.
Rounding out the top 10 were Tyler Walton, Doug Hammaker, York’s Alyson Dietz, Ashley Cappetta and York’s Brett Strickler.

Rounding out the top 10 were Lucas Wolfe, Logan Wagner, Carl Bowser, Mike Wagner and T.J. Stutts.
